Jack Warnock

Jack Warnock is a multi-instrumentalist and singer from Maghera, Co. Derry.

Absorbing music from an early age and playing piano from the age of seven, Jack's love of trad would really blossom when he picked up the guitar in his teens. He quickly fell in love with the tunes and songs that seemed to surround him, and that was that - his calling was clear. His guitar style has been guided and influenced by many greats, including John Doyle, Tim Edey, Ed Boyd, Tony McManus and Seamie O'Dowd, to name but a few.

An avid Gaeilgeoir, Jack performs songs in both Irish and English. His compositions and selections are steeped in storytelling, as he embraces the lineage of folk music in its truest form.

His latest album, Le Solas Faoithine(translating as By Dusklight) is a masterwork of thought, consideration, and beautiful curation. Recorded and produced by himself and Dónal O’Connor, Le Solas Faoithine features contributions from Toby Shaer, Archie Churchill-Moss, and Conor Mallon, and can comfortably sit alongside any traditional Irish debut release of recent times.

We are delighted and honoured to have Jack perform before Misneach suite.
